Greek terracotta figural relief, 400-300 B.C.

The ancient Greeks were great sculptors, forerunners of the sinuosity of the human body and of contrapuntal postures that gave the body wonderful movement and theatrical stability. This relief depicts a woman dressed in a chiton that covers her body from behind as well, in the wind, while holding a man, perhaps assimilated to the god Eros, who appears on his knees. Stylistically, it is a classic relief in which the sculptor seeks to study the anatomy and performs an incipient technique of wet cloths, through which the body is insinuated under the cloth. The faces are also classics with idealized profiles in both the features and the hair.
